Ok, this will sound strange but sometimes I play better at World Am because I don’t know the courses and don’t have established mental scar tissue for certain holes. I’m playing blind and don’t have holes that I have baggage on that I have torn up, made huge scores on, hate the way the tee box lines up, ect. like at my home courses. Plus it’s flat. I live in the mountains.
Does this theory make sense to anybody else?
Hope everyone has safe travels back home! Tear up your home course when you get there, it will seem easy after this week!September 10, 2020 at 11:40 am #48692Ron ZietakParticipant
I have to agree with you for the most part Christine. For me as long as there aren’t a lot of blind shots I tend to play courses for the first time pretty well too for the reasons you mention. The real thing for me is if I get a good feel for the speed of the greens within the first few holes. Hope you had a nice time I know I did.September 10, 2020 at 1:07 pm #48693Mike CheesemanParticipant
I agree Christine. I normally play better on courses that I have never seen before.March 8, 2021 at 9:53 am #48850Raymond BlankParticipant
If your like me (ADD-ADHD) and all those other eaters in the alphabets that the doctors say I have it’s hard for me to stay focused at my normal courses. So when I get to the world AM I can keep my focus longer.March 11, 2021 at 7:27 am #48851Mike CheesemanParticipant
Hey Raymond my issue is I can’t remember the courses I played. I usually remember half way through the round so the front nine is usually a good score. LolMarch 27, 2021 at 7:43 am #48914Raymond BlankParticipant
LOL Mike. You and I would make a good pairing. Only problem is we might get confused and not make it back to the club house.March 27, 2021 at 11:59 am #48916Dale CraigParticipant
Not me! I’m the complete opposite. I usually come in playing the best golf of the year. I will have just played in our club championship and multiple other local and club tournaments and am excited to bring my game to the WA. My mental scar tissue now seems to rear it’s head at the WA in the fact that I only play Bermuda and southern golf conditions this 1 week a year. Consequently, I get into my head with trying to figure out how to read and putt the greens and play out of that damn Bermuda rough when I get in it. Northern bent grass and southern Bermuda are definitely 2 different styles of golf and it’s hard for me to relearn and adjust every year.
